The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye from Pantheon Books

The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye from Pantheon Books is out this week!

It was one of Publishers Weekly’s Most Anticipated Books of Spring 2016, who say that the book is a “stunning tour de force masterpiece of imagined and real history” and that “this multilayered book is a masterpiece“.

The Beat meanwhile calls it the “first superlative graphic novel… easily the first comics masterwork of 2016

Do pick up a copy at your favourite bookstore or online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Indie BoundPowell’s or Books-a-Million 🙂

Riotously funny, heartbreakingly beautiful, fizzing with provocative ideas… breathes life and intimacy into the multi-layered history of Malaysia and Singapore. Sonny Liew has produced a true masterpiece. ”
